I used to write two educational blogs - one for English Language Learners and one for English Language Teachers and I also ran a website selling conversation materials to English language teachers. Furthermore, in 2007, I worked on the English script of an animation film, City Animals adapting the German text into English and also created a 12 unit audio book with Didactica.
In 2009, I was co-author on GreenLine: Working with Film (secondary school film analysis textbook) for Klett Verlag.
I have also published stories, blog posts and articles for many ELT magazines, Oxford University Press, Harpers & Queen and HK New Age. In my spare time I write philosophical poetry (historical epics) and have completed several screenplays.

Am the founder of a writing group which meets monthly at the Deutsch Amerikanisches Zentrum – our members are a mix of Germans, British/Americans, Russian and Arabic nationalities. We edit each other’s work and I present writing based workshops. We held our first Public Reading (60 guests) in January 2008 and will have a second in July 2008.
